Doing fine

Mom has her surgery yesterday and it went okay. She is on bed rest for the next three weeks but if this 'plug' thing works she will be able to start drinking and eating again. It will be a slow process, clear liquids, then soft foods and there is lots of things she will never be able to have again, but she is so looking forward to being able to have a cup of tea again and some watermelon. I like that too so I will be happy to taste test it for her.

In other news, I seem to have an allergy to something and it is making my nose and face very itchy. I have been driving the mom crazy with my scratching. Dad has bought some allergy shampoo so we are going to try that and see if it helps - if anyone has some other ideas on how to ease it, we would love to hear about them. It is only my face that is itchy so we need to be careful because of my eyes.

The great cowspot hunter

Woofitty woof - I caught my first critter ever today!!!!! Those pesky ground squirrels are back now that the weather has warmed up and I caught me one and then left it right by the bathroom door for the mom to find. For some reason though, mom didn't seem overly happy with my gift, especially when she had to dispose of the little body. There is just no pleasing peoples sometimes!

Still going well

The mom is still home and doing okay. She does have to go in next Tuesday for some tests and a day surgery (they are going to put a 'plug' in the hole in her stomach which will hopefully stop it leaking) Mom has also been outside a few times, she gets tired really easily so we don't get to play but we enjoy sitting outside together. Thank you once again to Miss Katie and her mom for the wonderful cards they send each week - mom has saved everyone and will be sending Katie and her mom something special as a thank you. I hope every doggie is enjoying and spring this side of the world - I know I love being able to go outside and bark bark bark.

An update

Mom is still at home (she did spend one night in the hospital while they removed a stint from her esophagus) and she is doing SOOOOO much better now. She is still VERY weak and gets exhausted easily but she starting slowly to be more like my old mom. She said to tell everyone a VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU for all the wishes and prayers you have been sending her way and that they mean a lot to her.
